- 0.5 cup Coconut Sugar

- 0.25 cup Real Maple Syrup
- 3 large Eggs
- 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract/Paste
- 1 cup (or use rolled oats) Oat Flour

Easy apple cake made with oat and almond flour and sweetened with coconut sugar and real maple syrup.
This cake is made in 1 bowl with 12 ingredients and it gluten and refined sugar free.
This guilt free apple cake is a celebration of the fall apple harvest.
It’s the perfect treat to bring to any gathering and share with your friends and family.
You can use any variety of apple. I prefer red apples for that pop of color!
Instead of buying oat flour, I recommend using your food processor to blitz up old fashioned oats.
Making your own oat flour is cheaper too!
Quick tip: I recommend buying grass-fed, unsalted butter. Irish or European butter contain less water, more flavor and also comes up to room temperature much faster.
Make The Cake Batter
To a large bowl, add the coconut sugar, softened butter and maple syrup. Mix well with a spatula until creamed together.
Next, add the eggs and mix well with a whisk.
Add the vanilla extract and mix again.
To the wet ingredients, add the oat flour, almond flour, cinnamon, salt and baking powder.
Mix well with a whisk.
Since there is no gluten, there is no fear of over-mixing.
Decorate The Cake
Add parchment paper to your cake tin or grease it with butter.
I like using a spring form tin for easy removal.
Add the cake batter to your prepared cake tin and spread the batter out evenly.
Arrange the apple slices on top and get creative!
Lastly, finely chop some almond with a knife or your food processor then sprinkle them on top of the cake.
